Howdy JBE fans! Co-editor extraordinaire Richard Moore here, with an update about a long-anticipated product for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game! We’ve been talking to you guys at conventions and online in various forums, working to create supplements that deliver the game options YOU want most! Our latest in our popular series of player-focused supplements will be the Book of Heroic Races: Gelatinous Cubes!

This player supplement fulfills a long-lamented gap in player race options, as there are no playable races with the ooze creature type to date. We wanted to fix that, so we created a playable race that is perfectly balanced to interact seamlessly with other existing races in the core rules. Additionally, every gamer can now actively participate in the many great tropes associated with gelatinous cubes from their side of the screen! Want to sweep an entire hallway full of vermin so your party can proceed without taking all that pesky swarm damage? Now you can! Itching to hide in a wishing well and wait for an unsuspecting troupe of goblins to wander by looking for treasure? Look no further!

This supplement will be chock full of new player options, including class archetypes like the Cubist Painter (bard), the Cube Miner (rogue), and the 8-Bit Adventurer (fighter), alternate racial traits such as Flavored, Cloudy, awesome new feats like Glomming Strike, plus new spells, ooze-themed equipment, and much more!

We expect blockbuster sales figures as a result of our new initiative, so we’re proud to announce that Book of Heroic Races: Gelatinous Cubes will be offered as a full-color, hardback 64-page print product alongside our Book of Beasts: Legendary Foes monster supplement at GenCon 2013!

  1. Oh; By the high throne of elements, LOL..
    I haven’t even seen it and I’ve got a character struggling to get out.

  2. At last, a like mind who understands the Greatness inherent in the Gelatinous Cube ! My lifelong dream is coming true !

  3. Oh, damn you! I was really digging this until I remembered what day it is. I mean I still dig it, but now I feel robbed. I mean playing a WarForged is cool and all, but holy cows, who could resist playing a Gelatinous Cube.

    You both suck and rock. Great post. Now get cracking I want a copy. :p

  4. Arrrg. My acid will eat your bones, I completely forgot what today is. So did my wife or you wouldn’t have been the first to get me.

  5. It’s adventure by the square foot! Forget rolling a die 6 now you can roll-play one! Character development is so easy, with no intelligence and no discernible skills, players are free to use their own personalities! Thrill at the excitement of slow engulfment! Wait patiently in a hallway for years at a time! And for mature players there is the sensuality of mitosis!
